Hello everyone we had a call to a nursing home on Monday. Call was kitchen hood fan is no longer working. Came to the site found power going to a single 20 amp toggle switch on the wall they said controlled the fan. No ansul like I am familiar with on new Kitchens that I've done. They did have mechanical dry fire suppression. A few items under the hood like broilers, convection oven. So when I pulled the switch out I had voltage. The load was .2 a and was switching on and off. Definitely could feel cool air coming in. Basement kitchen, 2 levels of nursing home above and large hood fan with shroud sitting on 45 degree pitch roof where it was 20 up to the soffit and another 15ft up the angle. In talks about getting a picker to service the unit. I am told the fan was worked on a few years ago under different management. What would be your thoughts or assumptions? Appreciate the help as always.
